EARLY LIFE IN AUSTRALIA My encounter with God began when I was six years old, my younger sister Lyn was suffering from acute asthma attacks and she could hardly breathe, my parents could not afford doctors fees, so they cried out to God for help! I witnessed many times as a young boy my sister’s release in breathing as my family prayed to God. Eventually my sister received total healing through her own personal faith and prayers. I was baptized in 1957 at the age of nine and attended a Baptist Church and Boy’s Brigade. I had a form of religion at this time but Jesus was not the Lord of my life. I began my musical career at the age of fifteen, I studied guitar and music for two years and then began playing in various bands and doing solo engagements.
 
THE CALL OF GOD At the age of nineteen I made Jesus the Lord of my life at a Billy Graham Crusade in Sydney Australia. I experienced an infilling of the Holy Spirit that transformed my life. The love of God flooded my heart and emptied me of selfishness, I began to witness immediately and testify to grace of God. At this point I felt to leave the entertainment scene and pursue the call of God on my life. My parents opened up a small dwelling at the rear of their home as an outreach ministry. Together as a family we witnessed over six hundred conversions to the glory of God. My future wife Kerri was one of our former conversions and after a two year engagement we married in June 1980. I struggled through the next few years as both my parents past away in close proximity. After closing the home outreach we formed a family musical group and played at various churches and functions. We attended Hills Christian Life Center pastored by Brian Houston and we were leaders of a home cell group. I also attended full time Bible College for two years.In September 1988 we moved north to the state of Queensland and helped pioneer a new Church with Pastors George and Angie Gebran.
 
THE FAMILY CHALLENGE In November 1996 I traveled to the USA and visited the Brownsville Revival, I was hungry for a fresh anointing and new direction in my life. I earnestly desired His will above all else. After revisiting the USA again in 1998 the Lord confirmed that we were to move to America for His purposes, with the blessing of our local church we sold everything and moved in February 1999.
 
LIFE IN THE USA Since being in America God has established us as a family and ministry, three of our four children have found their future partners and we have nine grandchildren. I have recorded two new CDs and written a book called The Night Watch since our arrival in the USA. After supporting our sponsoring church for two years we also pioneered the Rock Outreach and Cave ministry to the youth of our area.
 
CURRENTLY I am currently a member and musician at Living Faith Christian Center in Niceville Florida. I am also developing a new guitar teaching concept for the internet. We are preparing for a powerful new season working through our local church and Shake The City events.  
 
God Bless
